Really first rate wines sometimes, almost magically, demonstrate qualities that seem mutually exclusive. How can a wine, for example, be both creamy and crisp simultaneously? Or be powerful and sleek, as well as edgy and inviting, all at the same time? The answer, of course, is that wine isn't quite like anything else and the 2015 Smith Madrone Chardonnay demonstrates this proposition in a particularly striking manner. It is all of the above and more. It is an especially delicious expression of the complexities of mountain fruit. If you enjoy Chardonnay we think you will agree that this wine is simply exceptional.

Wine EnthusiastFrom the exceptional site atop Spring Mountain, this white is lovely and complex, a mix of sharp tangerine, orange and lime flavor that packs within its layers of fruit an undeniable thirst-quenching acidity. The oak is supportive and subtle, playing a supporting role with deft ability.
